Written examinations should be prepared for each level in the program. These examinations can be revised annually and prepared for the fall of the year. Beginning at Level II, a passing mark on the exam is established and a candidate cannot be certified at this or a higher levels until this passing grade is met.
Following is a breakdown for each level: All exams will be an open book exam.
Level I & II 70%
Level III 80%
Level IV 90%
As noted above, the exam for each Level is revised annually. A bank of questions should be developed for each level and new questions are inserted in order to change the exam.
There are certain other policies that can be adopted as far as the exams are concerned. They are listed below:
- All exams will be administered at the conclusion of the clinic, take home exams are not acceptable.
- Participants will hand in an answer sheet and the exam.
- If possible, exams will be marked and recorded immediately at the conclusion of the clinic.
- When an individual fails to achieve the minimum at Levels III or higher, the individual may request one supplementary re-write exam. Passing marks for the supplementary exam remain the same as noted above.
If the official still fails:
- The individual must attend another clinic of the same level one year after failing the exam.
- Though uncertified, the individual may still officiate at higher levels of broomball, but certification will not be complete until the official passes the exam.
The Provincial RIC must encourage officials to complete certification requirements the following year.
